So I have this issue with people watching me write on my machine. Right now as I wait for take out there’s a guy watching me put this down. Here’s my issue: As stuff comes out of my head it looks crazy. And like most people, I like the world to see me one way. But when people see my chaotic process it’s different. It’s embarrassing, really. I don’t like people looking at me when I think.
Of course the whole thing is compounded by the fact that I use a monstrous font that can be seen from 175 yards.
During medical school I remember a conversation with a teenage girl with anorexia nervosa. She told me that eating in front of people was like walking around in public naked. It’s like that for me, only different.
As an advocate for public thinking perhaps it’s hypocritical that there are some things I don’t like people to see.
